Ravens Player Just Stuck It To Ray Lewis With Message Why He Proudly Stood For Anthem

Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who was early in his career seriously suspected of being an accomplice to homicide, is one of the nominees for possible induction as part of the 2018 class into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Lewis may have seriously hurt his chances, however, by stirring up a public firestorm with his outspoken support of Colin Kaepernick and the current crop of NFL protesters against the National Anthem. Thankfully, current Ravens offensive tackle Austin Howard stood for the national anthem and just hit back at Lewis with the reason why he proudly did so.

Wrote Howard on his Instagram account, “I have so many thoughts, emotions and opinions about the unfortunate and current state of our country right now. It would be so easy so lash back with an unthought through response, and ‘go on the attack’, but what would that do? Instead, I will pass along a message I recently read from a pastor that my wife and I have trusted and looked up to for years…. ‘If I take a knee during the national anthem, it would be two knees, so that I can pray for the evil and wrong in this world…’”

Austin continued, “Mere men cannot make the changes that need to happen, only One can defeat all evil, and ease the pain this evil has caused so many. Lord I pray for this country, I thank you for blessing me enough to live in this great country, I pray for the hearts of those who have succumbed to hatred and evil. I pray that the message that those like me need to get across to others can be done in such a manner that truths and actual feelings may be clearly seen and understood.”

He concluded, “We are all different, and every single one of us were born in sin. It is only by Your Grace that we are able to wake up each and every day. Allow those who are in such positions to make positive changes by using their public platforms that you have blessed them with, do so in a manner that upholds all truth and brings honor to your Name and Kingdom. In Jesus name, Amen!!! #ISurrender #NFL #Trump #Anthem #Unity#Ravens” Are you glad proud patriot Howard stood up for our country’s values like this?
